WEll first of all Hello guys, Long time lurker first time poster. I have found so much good info here I figured this is where I would post my question. I have an older Remington 700 ADL that my father gave me. it is a 7mm rem mag, Kicks like a mule, worst trigger ever lol. I am going to build a magnum caliber or similar long range gun for general long range shooting and hunting. I have a 6.5 CM for the stuff 1000 and in. but Have had a hankering for a .338 Lapua as of late. Knowing I cannot build that off of this action I have started looking into other calibers. one being the .338 edge or even just the 300WM. There are so many choices out there I am looking for you all opinions so it will help me have good info as I search through the interwebs. BTW I do reload but would like to keep even my reloads to $1.00 or less for plinking and maybe $1.50 or so for good hunting rounds. Lastly I will probably top this with either a Vortex PST FFP 6-24 or a Vortex Razor. Everything else is pretty open.
